Step 3. Three Quick Facial Photos
Facial photos should be taken with your back against a plain wall and your phone camera flash on. They should be from shoulders up as shown below.
Step 4. Five Quick Teeth Selfies
All you will need to capture these photos is a cell phone and a pair of spoons. The spoons will be used to keep the cheeks and lips out of the way so that we can get better views of your teeth. For clearer, brighter photos please make sure that your flash is on and the photos are focused. Below are examples of what the photos should look like.
